It's difficult to put into words how precious these dear friends are to me. Marianna is one of the warmest, most genuine and loving people that I've ever known. She is compassionate and kind, and she has helped me and encouraged me in my business and personal journeys more than I can express. She is a beautiful person inside and out, and I knew that when she finally found the one whom her soul loved, they would be an incredible pair. Even so, I was not fully prepared for Michael. I could not have dreamed up a more perfect partner for my friend. He is strong and determined, a natural leader, and it is no secret that he absolutely adores Marianna. These two are talented, remarkable people, and Robert and I are greatly blessed to have them in our lives. I am so honored that I had the opportunity to document their wedding day. It was a perfect day. We began the day with preparations and a first look at the Love's family home in Atlanta.
Hello, gorgeous girl!
Grab a tissue, y'all. Marianna's first look with her dad was absolutely precious!
Michael and Marianna chose to have their first look in his parent's backyard. It was so beautiful!
Michael was so overcome with emotion when he saw Marianna that he smiled and said, "I can't wait to be your wife!" This was Marianna's response. It's OK, Michael, we know what you meant! :)
When we wrapped up at the Love's home, we headed to the Greystone at Piedmont Park where the wedding ceremony and reception were held. These two could not have asked for a more perfect day! The sun was shining, but it was cool and breezy. I couldn't believe their luck! Who gets weather like this in August?
Before the public ceremony, Michael and Marianna gathered inside with their families for the Ketubah signing. I loved this part of their ceremony, because it was so intimate and personal.
This photo of Marianna and her brother makes me so happy. You can tell by the way she looks at him that she loves him so much!
